JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (NNS) -- Naval Facilities Engineering Command (NAVFAC) Southeast awarded a more than $15 million contract Sept. 15 to CDM Constructors. Inc. of Maitland, Florida for Fleet Readiness Center Southeast (FRCSE) Industrial Wastewater Treatment System repairs onboard Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida.

"Our industrial waste water treatment plants are critical to our operations," said Capt. Trent DeMoss, FRCSE commanding officer. "If these systems fail it would force closing critical facilities required to meet our FRCSE mission of providing aviation maintenance solutions that satisfy warfighters' demands."

The project provides new equipment, instrumentation and controls to allow FRCSE's two industrial treatment facilities - buildings 780 and 799, to operate effectively and efficiently. The treatment facilities collect waste streams from various aviation maintenance processes such as painting, chemical stripping, metal plating, and parts cleaning.

The water treatment process will now have a two-step approach; industrial waste water will first be treated using traditional industry methods, and then further polished using ion exchange technology. The final result is a water quality that meets strict process standards. Industrial water will be reintroduced back into the process facilities, completing the treatment industrial waste water loop. This project not only updates two outdated facilities, but will reduce FRCSE's water consumption by millions of gallons of each year.

"The industrial waste water treatment plants in Buildings 780 and 799 at FRCSE are aged and failing," said NAS Jacksonville Public Works Officer Cmdr. Sylvester Adamah. "The treatment plants require frequent maintenance and repairs to avoid unacceptable levels of hazardous chemicals being released into the NAS Jacksonville sanitary sewer system."

The Navy consistently monitors potential effects on the environment to ensure compliance and maintains good relationships with state and federal regulators.

Work will be performed in Jacksonville Florida and is expected to be complete by October 2018.
